I really didn't know what to do with it because the top flips open to a large hole since there was no sewing machine.
I was going to try to think up a way to utilize that hole--like other bloggers have done. In the end, I just screwed the top down so it couldn't open any more.
I painted it with a blue/green oops paint (mixed into DIY chalk paint). I used this same paint on this desk last year too. I envisioned the table next to a twin bed as a night stand, but since it is tall, can also be used as a small desk.
After a little brainstorming, I came up with painting out the front panel as a chalkboard and use the # with it. What teenage girl isn't going to want to write a #WordOfTheDay on a table?
Too cute! It just makes sense to have this as a small desk/table for a kid's room. It is so petite, it could squeeze in the smallest kid's bedroom. And the fact that it is desk height makes it even better. #DoubleDuty
On just this side of the table is the only evidence it was a sewing table--unless you flip it over. #You'llNeverKnow
